Solo cycling: Paris to Nice
by Suze, tour started September 2014, submitted 10 February 2015

Paris to Nice: my longest, and in many ways most challenging, solo tour ever. I planned my route inspired by the famous Race to the Sun, and followed various segments of that parcours. But I added detours, making my ride longer and more beautiful, higher and challenging. Detours to climb Mont Ventoux from the west in Malaucene, then turn back to the northeast into the Alps to Barcelonnette, to climb Cime de la Bonette, the highest paved road in the French Alps. The route over Col de la Cayolle, one of the most beautiful climbs I have ever ridden, led me to Nice. Of course, I planned for time to visit museums, Roman ruins, medieval churches and vineyards along the way. It is, after all, France where I was touring.

Cime de la Bonette, the highest paved road in France
Touring Namibias round wildlife beauties
by Iris Mueck, tour started January 2014, submitted 22 January 2015

Winter time in Austria, where I live is hard. In order to avoid losing all my little power, I have decided to spent some time on the other half of the globe. A long way to go down there. But worth to see.

Crossing the equator by your plane can be shaky. When I met a pilot on the occasion we shared the same train at Heathrow's terminal 5 train, he said: "this are just bumps as on a lousy road".

Today, Namibia is a rather save country in terms of criminal acts. I would say drug free. You have to expect there will be no public transport. Long distance travel mostly made by shuttle services. I used the Welwitchia shuttle service, which I can recommend. Alternatively you may take the desert train, which operates from May through October.

Bicyclist are very rare. On many roads outside the city limits, one may not find a shoulder, what makes bicycling very dangerous. Namibian car drivers are very similar to the Spain car drivers: once they are in motion, it is very hard to stop them.

One thing to know: The high season starts on May. You have to have booked an accommodation in advance. If not you may sleep in your tent (not recommended - can be dangerous because of wildlife animals). You still may find Island whereas German is spoken. Even they have at least two German TV programs: ZDF & Sat1 (without the nagging sex adds at night time).

Iceland - A paradise for cyclists
by Travel Nerd, tour started 2009, submitted 20 October 2014

Wind, rain, mud and rubble, Iceland is known to bring man and material to its limits.

There was only one problem ... my girl friend! There are two things that should not meet under any circumstances: Her and Iceland (and certainly not with a bicycle). In order to save our relationship, I finally was holding a bye in my hand and was allowed to leave.

In addition, there is a picture gallery.

Bicycle tour Passau to Vienna (2014)
by Iris Mueck, tour started September 2014, submitted 25 September 2014

We did it again...: as nearly every year, we did the fall bicycle tour Passau (Germany) to Vienna (Austria). This time our Group has been complete. Raimund, vulgo the Chefe has joined us. He came with the train to Passau. We have carried one of our bicycles to Passau. After many complaints, he accepted this bicycle.

Our faith have been not so good this day, as Heide was in charge to carry Raimund's bicycle to Passau. Unfortunately she left it at Wels were we changed the train. The bicycle has been leaning for hours unwatched at the platform. At Passau: a big surprise: of course - no bicycle for Raimund. Telephone companies made a good business. Our first attempt to contact the German trains station officer was "we have no contact to the Austrian railroad company - everything is automated"... . Finally Heide found a guy at the ticketing counter who has private contact with a guy at Wels, were the bicycle actually was. Success! his guy checked, and the bicycle was still there. Unbelievable in this times we life. Heide went back with one of the next trains to Wels, picked up the bike and followed us to our accommodation.

Our tour continued smoothly the next days in extreme good weather condition. We have modified our tour a little in order to check for "new" accommodations. Enjoy the taken pictures and the report. Good luck to our followers.

A fantastic tour, starting in Annecy, taking in the Col de Roselend, Col d'Iseran, Croix de Fer and Col Madeleine, then back to Geneva. The page gives details of the route, hotels and restaurants.

cycle experience 2014 Sweden
by Johannes Mattisson, tour started June 2014, submitted 30 July 2014

This post is about my 13 day cycling midsweden in June. The theme of this trip is how Sweden's prosperity grew with the forest, ore and hydropower. To and from Östersund, I saw all the time evidence and examples of how the idea of specialization has driven development. In the north were the mines are and raw materials produced, timber and ore. A little further south it was evidence of processed ore in blast furnaces in northern Bergslagen. In southern Bergslagen ore used to make steel. Round Lake Mälaren grew up manufactories which used steel to make products. In Stockholm there where capital.

Thus runs all capital flows to Stockholm from north to south, and this, I saw very clearly on my tour through Sweden. So it may be the theme of this trip

It seems to be modern today, to organize very classic bike tours... The "In velo veritas" tour" is one of them. http://www.inveloveritas.at/

A pleasures mountain-bike tour Hamburg to Lueneburg
by Iris Mueck, tour started June 2014, submitted 13 June 2014

We took the chance to visit our German bike friends to visit them. Whitsunday is a busy time in Germany. A lot of bikers are on the way... . It seems Hamburg is somehow competing with Copenhagen.

We found so many bike groups. Some of them heading for the same destination.

We had sunshine by nature and in our hearts. It was simply fun.

The arrival at the "llmenau Radweg" is somehow special. To eat and drink at the end of the tour, in a historic town of Lueneburg was our award for the tour.

Dr. No rides an electric bike, and he rides hard. Always stressing me by speed. "If I would know, you are behind me, I would have been riding much more slower..." (A joker or what?)...

Enjoy the pictures and the report. Good luck to our followers!

Bicycle touring around Southamerica, from Colombia to Argentina
by Alberto and Lucy, tour started January 2014, submitted 16 April 2014

In January 2014 we started a dream of ours: bicycle tour around Southamerica, without a major route plan. Just ride South from Quito, via Colombia first. Why Southamerica? The landscapes, the people, the culture, the food, and most importantly, the language. Being fluent Spanish speakers allows a more intimate connection with the people and communities we will be cycling through.

Ecopista do Dão - Cycling on an abandoned railway line

language: en, nl, pt

Ecopista do Dão - Cycling in central Portugal along an abandoned railway line, 49 km.

The first part of this path runs along the banks of the river Dão. Every bend in the river is followed by a bend in the Ecopista, with stannic views.

Later on, the Ecopista leaves the river, but the landscape remains very beautiful, with views of mountains and valleys covered with oaks, cork oaks and chestnut trees, but also some vineyards, cultivated land and small villages.

Norway 2014
The Shirt project wheels along! The next stage in the Journey is announced! On June 14 I shall set out from Kirkenes on the Russian border. This is probably the toughest challenge to date as we are not talking the flatlands of the Netherlands or the East of England. No, I shall face the mountains and valleys of the west coast of Norway. The backbone of the journey will be a visit to all the clubs in the top three divisions of Norwegian football. The journey will take me from down from Kirkenes to Bodø (the most northerly of the Tippeligaen clubs to Trondheim (RBK), Molde, Aalesund, Sogndal, Brann, Haugesund, Stavanger on to Kristiansand, Skien and then 1000 km loop inland before finishing with the clubs in the Oslo area. A journey of some 5000 km. Hopefully, I will finish at City Hall, Oslo in one piece on or before the 31st August. This trip is NOT for the faint-hearted!

Why Norway?
In the 1840s, Ivar Aasen from Ørsta, Sunnmøre travelled the length and breadth of Norway to collate the dialects and language usage of the country. He wanted to hear and annotate the language so that he could create a standarised pan-Norwegian language. This he realised was very different from the "official" Danish language spoken at that time.

Yes, I will also travel the length and breadth of Norway to find out what Norway is REALLY like in the early 21st century. This may or not be very different from the "official" view.

Portugal By Bike - 1982km
by Armand Iurea, tour started August 2013, submitted 29 January 2014
language: fr

I achieved this journey in August 2013, by myself, with the aim of living new thrilling experiences. It also allowed me to train at cycling in order to prepare future long distance triathlons (IronMan, Embrunman, ...).

A wise man told me one day "You can't see all the wonderful things that exists on this vast planet in one lifetime but you can decide anytime to rest for a few moments and appreciate the present moment." I am listening at his advice, I am not trying to cycle the faster I can (whenever I am travelling); what purpose, I would be the only witness. I take my time, I stop whenever I see something that intrigates me. In the end, we've all always been explorers, aren't we? About my route, I had the choice of either starting with the North and finish at the South, or the opposite. After having compared the flight prices and established my approximate itinerary, I decided to start with Porto (North) and to finish at Faro (South). Halfway, I've let my bike at Lisbon and I went to relax for 2 days at Madeira, island of Portugal.

Cycling Summits and Passes in California
by Michael Fiebach, tour started September 2013, submitted 30 December 2013

Cycling Climbs in Northern California: complete with elevation profiles. One of my favorite paved rides was a loop in Lassen Volcanic National Park, and crossing the Sierra Mountains on a small curvy road, that is very unusual for the USA: Ebbetts Pass.

In the not so perfectly paved category, my favorite ride was a ride around one of the volcanoes in the northern part of the state, Mount Shasta.

In the MTB trail category, some of the best views are from the Tahoe Rim Trail, around Lake Tahoe.

Tour of ENG-FR-SP-IT-SLO-CRO-AUS-SUI-GDR-NETH
by Michael Simmons, tour started June 2008, submitted 13 December 2013

I always dreamed of bicycling through Europe and climbing as many of the famous climbs of the Tour de France and Giro Italia as possible. My tour ended up being for almost 10 weeks, 3020 miles/4860 kilometers, and I pedaled through 10 countries. I loved the entire tour but 2 aspects stand out: 1)France stands out for my favorite cycling, for the amazing secondary road system and because I got to climb, the Tourmalet, Aubisque, Peyresourde, Aspin, Mont Ventoux, Alpe D'Huez, Lauteret; and 2) I visited the home villages of three of my grandparents in Slovenia and Croatia. Crossing Italy I opted for the Italian Riviera and Tuscany, but later wished I had pedaled across the Lakes Region and the Dolomites. And because of factors out of my control I had to cut my trip short so I skipped my plans of zig zagging across Switzerland. Enjoy my journal and the pictures.
